All About Black Cherry

Here we are with another Autumn inspired post (can you tell that I love this time of year?). As you might be aware from my previous posts, burgundy/berry/maroon/wine/whatever-you-call-it is my favourite colour to wear at this time of year, and throughout Winter as well. So much so, that a recent trip to Boots resulted in me buying two products with the name 'Black Cherry'. It was probably intentional! Fortunately, these products have impressed me a lot so I thought it would be fun to review both of them.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick  - Black Cherry 447

One thing that beauty bloggers and youtubers have taught me over the years is that you can pull of a dark lip and make it casual. Therefore, it was about time that I bought a berry lipstick. I didn't want to invest in a high end product straight away, so I turned to Revlon - my favourite drugstore brand when it comes to lip products! Black Cherry is a beautiful colour which is so easy to build up depending how dramatic you want your look to be - great for everyday or an evening look. Sometimes I'll pair with winged eyeliner and/or eye shadow for a really intense look, or I'll simply add mascara to really let my lips do the talking! It looks great either way. I also think that it suits so many skin tones, after seeing Estee Lalonde (blogger/youtuber) looking amazing wearing it, as well as my friends who already have it. Staying power isn't amazing, especially when eating but I find that it does leave a stain on my lips, which I don't mind! Overall, for just £7.99 it's a really good drugstore lipstick. 8/10.

Barry M Midnight Gelly Nail Paint - Black Cherry

I get so excited whenever Barry M add new colours to their Gelly range every season. And this collection is another winner. This year, their new colours are super dark and almost black, hence the name of the collection, 'Midnight'. These colours are so on trend, with the whole Gothic/Victoriana style being a huge hit this season. If you head over to my Instagram, you'll see I already have Black Pistachio, a beautiful dark green. I knew that Black Cherry was going to be my next purchase, the colour is amazing and the formula is great along with the rest of the range. It lasts at least 5 days, and with a top coat maybe even longer, so another 8/10 for me!
